Be generous: give your dollars to CARE

When I was a child CARE had a frequently-run TV commercial with that message.

Now, we need to send our dollars elsewhere.

His Beatitude says that everyone of us is going to have to give.

I wonder, along with Rush Limbaugh, whether, "everybody" also means those who presently aren't "giving."

Moreover, if he's talking about taxes (what else could it be?), then, in a sense, I don't know what he's talking about. We don't give the money; it's taken from us. Right out of our paychecks. Bam! Just like that.

If you gave to your church like that, some people would say you belonged to a cult. Indeed, if your church leadership knew as much about your life as your government, some would say you belonged to a cult.

Guess what. In the USA we all belong to the same cult. Whether we want to or not.
